The Galaxy S9 is yet to be unveiled and we already have a source on the internet that seems to know quite a bit about next year's flagship smartphone from Samsung, aka the Galaxy S10! While no information leaked this early can actually be taken very seriously, it might be worth noting that this piece of information comes from quite a credible source on the Chinese social networking website Weibo. Apparently, the S10 will sport a bigger battery and a chipset with AI capabilities.

 

 

The dedicated neural processing chip is actually quite an expected leak really, given that's where Apple and the rest of the smartphone OEMs are heading. It also reveals that the S10 will have UFS 3.0 memory, which would translate to lightning fast data transfer. The battery bit is quite interesting too as not only will it be bigger, but it will also be L-shaped to accommodate the Galaxy S10's form factor.  Other features according to the rumor include a next gen Infinity display with 93% screen-to-body ratio, support for 5G networks, better facial recognition and a pressure-sensitive display. Do you think this rumor has any credence or is it just another one of those hype posts?

While most manufacturers do have a codename for almost all their important devices, not every one of those codenames make it onto the final consumer product. The Galaxy S10 seems to have the codename Beyond, but it's probably only for the internal staff and not exactly a marketing term that we will see printed on the box. In case you are not aware, the Galaxy S9 has the codename Star and the Galaxy S8 was dubbed Dream.


So, does the name Beyond signify anything? It could, given that the Galaxy S10 is going to be Samsung's tenth anniversary S-series phone and they will likely hate to be outdone by Apple. The 3D camera which is rumored to be featured in the S10 could be a game changer, along with the in-display fingerprint scanner. We will just have to wait and see if Sasmung is truly able to go "beyond" their current gen flagships with the Galaxy S10.

A few days ago, a rumor began circulating that the Galaxy S10 will be launched quite early and as a result, it would be released early as well. However, it is to be noted that the same rumor circulated about the Galaxy S9 as well, so we would not recommend taking this one too seriously. You can argue that the Galaxy S9 was indeed launched early as compared to the Galaxy S8 but that's only because the Galaxy S8 was delayed intentionally to iron out all the battery issues that ruined the infamous Note 7. Traditionally, Samsung has always released the S series of flagship phones near the last week of February and the S9 just got back on routine this year after the exception of the Galaxy S8. Therefore, the January launch date which a report by The Bell seems to indicate is unlikely.


Some are of the opinion that this change in schedule might be brought on due to the impending release of Samsung's first foldable smartphone next year, but things are way too vague at the moment to give any credence to such reports. We will keep you updated as things develop.

A few interesting details about the upcoming Galaxy S10 and the Note 9 has recently been revealed and although there's no way to be 100% sure whether these are rumors or facts, they are quite exciting nonetheless.


Bigger Battery


The Galaxy S and Note line-ups are not exactly famous for their battery life and that fact was painfully obvious with the Galaxy Note 8 last year which sported just a 3,300mAh battery, in spite of sporting a huge display. That is probably going to change this year though as a report from famous leakster Ice Universe suggests that the Note 9 might sport a 4,000mAh battery and we really hope that this one's true. Accommodating the bigger battery would be possible because Samsung will apparently shift its camera positions to make room for it.


No More Earphones


One of the biggest issues with removing the bezels of a smartphone completely is the fact that you have to make room for the earphone up top. Of course, the notch is the new iPhone-led path to follow for smartphones, as made evident by almost every Android smartphone manufacturer adopting the technology this year. However, Samsung could be looking to solve this problem in a different way by removing the earphone altogether! Apparently, the Galaxy S10 will let the user hear the person on the other side via the display itself, through bone conduction technology. Whether this will work better than it did on the Xiaomi Mi Mix or not, remains to be seen.

There was a time when the nearly bezel-less display introduced by Samsung with the Galaxy S8 was considered to be revolutionary, but that time is now officially over. The iPhone X's notch has taken over these days from the Infinity Display as it seems to be the go to choice for almost every other Android manufacturer as well. However, report has it that Samsung is not going to follow Apple this time (for a change!), but instead, they will remove the earphone completely from the Galaxy S10. The new technology will deliver sound directly through the display, via bone conduction technology and that will let them narrow the bezels even further on their next year's flagship smartphone.


Whether the S10 will look anything like what we are seeing in this image remains to be seen, but we have to admit that the modified render by Ice Universe does look pretty damn amazing! Let us know what you think down in the comments and enjoy the picture.

S10


The Galaxy S9 is an excellent smartphone, or at least the S9+ is anyway! Nevertheless, it didn't get as much critical acclaim as the Galaxy S8 did back in 2017. The reason for this is of course the fact that the S9 and S9+ look almost identical to the S8 and S8+. Not that it was a bad thing mind you, especially in a world where every Android device was copying Apple and their notch. However, a lot of Samsung fans (including myself) held on to their S8/S8+ in the hope that the S10 will offer something much more innovative over the infinity display design, that's now starting to date. If the latest rumors are to be believed, then that may not after all be the case and the S10 could very well end up looking almost exactly like the S9! Famous leakster Ice Universe on the other hand, doesn't' quite agree or at least would hate to see that, as mentioned in his tweet, which follows as such.


"If the Galaxy S10 still does not adopt a major change in design, Samsung will be completely defeated by Huawei and damage the Samsung brand."

o-infinity-display


Samsung had so far avoided the hated Notch, but it looks like they are all set to adopt it, albeit in their own adaptation of it. If the latest leak by Evan Blass is to be believed then the Galaxy S10 will sport a new kind of Infinity display that they are calling "O-Infinity." As you can probably guess, the "O" likely stands for the O shaped notch which Samsung is rumored to be going for in all likelihood. Evan Blass does have a solid reputation for sending out reliable leaks, so there might be some credit to this one after all, although, it is a bit early for leaks about the Galaxy S10.


His leak also stated that the S10 will have three rear cameras (standard, telephoto and wide-angle), an in-display fingerprint scanner and Samsung's new One UI, powered by Android Pie. Unfortunately, if the punch-hole notch turns out to be true, it also means that the foldable smartphone, aka the Galaxy X won't be the Galaxy S10, like a lot of us were hoping for. We will let you know as soon as we find out more about this.

galaxy-s10


Although Samsung cannot exactly be blamed for copying Apple bluntly like so many other manufacturers do, there is little doubt about the fact that the Korean giant has started copying some of its biggest competitor's marketing strategies in regard to the Galaxy S line-up. In 2018, we saw Samsung clearly making the Galaxy S9 a inferior device to the Galaxy S9+ in the camera department by providing it with just one camera and reserving the dual camera module for the more expensive S9+. In 2019, Samsung would be releasing four variants of the Galaxy S10, similar to what Apple did with the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR this year.


As per reports from reliable sources, the devices can be classified as follows.


·        SM-G973x - The standard S10 (in the same tire as the iPhone XS)

·        SM-G975x - The S10+ (in the same tire as the iPhone XS Max)

·        SM-G970x - A low-end S10 (in the same tire as the iPhone XR)

·        A mythical S10 elite that has not been confirmed by anybody beyond speculation at this point


The rest of the three handsets have already received certifications in China and now the SM-G975x and the SM-G975F has also received their certifications in Russia. As per rumors, the S10+ will sport two front cameras and three rear cameras, a 1440 × 3040, 6.4" display and an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner inside the display.

s10-leaks


There is less than three months left in the Galaxy S10's launch and yet, we already know nearly everything that anyone might want to know about the device. Of course, most of it is based on leaks, rumors and intelligent speculations, but given the high rate of accuracy which the modern rumors and leaks boast of, we would say the following paints a pretty realistic picture of what is to be expected in February.


3 Variants of the Galaxy S10


s10-leaks-1


Similar to what Apple did with the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR earlier in the year, Samsung will likely release three variants of the Galaxy S10 as well, namely the S10, S10 Plus and the S10 Lite (the cheapest of the three).


Release Date


s10-leaks-2


A launch date in late February is expected, or more precisely, in between February 25 - 28, because that's when the Mobile World Congress 2019 will be held next year. Once it has been launched, we can expect the S10 series to go on sale somewhere in mid-March, with preorders likely starting much earlier.


The Cameras


s10-leaks-3


Depending on the model concerned, the number of cameras will differ, so take a look at the following to know what to expect.


·        Galaxy S10 Plus: 2 front sensors + 4 rear sensors


·        Galaxy S10: 2 front sensors + 3 rear sensors


·        Galaxy S10 Lite: Unknown


Although all the exact specifications are unknown, rumors predict that the primary camera will be a 16mp shooter, alongside a 13mp telephoto lens and a 12mp wide angle lens.


Infinity-O Display


s10-leaks-4


A nearly bezel-less design with just a punch hole cut out for the front camera sensors is what the Galaxy S10 will likely sport and that's being hailed as the Infinity-O display. Expect the display sizes to be 5.8", 6.2" and 6.44" but rumors have also suggested that a 5G capable, gigantic Galaxy S10 with 6.6" display might also exist. All panels will be Super AMOLED of course.


Price


s10-leaks-5


At this point, it is anyone's guess really, but even the cheaper Galaxy S10 Lite will probably start somewhere around the $849 mark, while the S10 and S10 Plus will likely start around $999 and $1199.


In-Display Fingerprint Sensor



The technology is quite old by now, but Samsung doesn't have any phone in the market that has the in-display fingerprint scanner yet unfortunately. The Galaxy S10 will change that for sure by being the first Samsung device to sport an invisible, in-display fingerprint scanner. However, the faster, ultrasonic scanners might only be reserved for the S10 and S10 Plus, while the S10 Lite will have to do with a comparatively slower in-display fingerprint scanner.


Others



The 3.5mm headphone jack will be retained thankfully and so will the Bixby button unfortunately! The international variants will invariably sport the 8nm Exynos 9820 chip, while American, Chinese and some other variants will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 to power them. At least 6GB of RAM is to be expected, with pricier 8GB RAM options also being present. Rumor also has it that the S10 Plus might have a variant with 1TB of internal storage, which is quite believable, give that the Note 9 does have a 512GB variant available already. Samsung's new OneUI will definitely be running on top of Android P on all of the three devices.


Do take a look at the linked videos and images to get an idea of what you can expect, but do keep an open mind because these are after all, still just rumors and speculations, until the device has been released officially.
